new york city, at new york university medical center these are the first pictures we were just showing you. where a power outage forced the evacuation of critical care patients. let's go to nbc news correspondent rehema ellis who's there now. what is the latest from there, rehe rehema? >> reporter: the evacuation is continuing, chris. as you point out, 215 patients, some pediatric patients and critical care patients who had to be evacuated when the backup generator fail. we're on 29th street and 1st avenue. everything from here on down has been in the dark for many hours tonight as a result of the storm. we understand there was a transformer fire at a con edison station in lower manhattan which could have knocked everybody out of power. it's important to point out there has been no chaos, no panic. it has been a very orderly transfer of patients here from the nyu university medical center. they also had intermittent telephone service and they've been letting people know that they have not been able to contact the loved ones of these patients as they're leaving. but they're leaving that
the storm process in a few minutes. first well say hello to ava marie at ocean city. you saw the sustained winds up to 85 miles an hour so you could easily see gusts close to 60 this morning. >> yes. interesting enough, i was looking at the report and they are getting gusts close to 60 miles an hour. we are on the pool deck of our hotel and the winds are variable because we're getting them affected by the building. they are gusting mostly out of the north but check the waves. they are incredible. you can see that barrier, that fence. that is where we were standing yesterday and now the water is coming in there heading through high tide. we are not able to stand on the coast. it is an incredible situation. the rain has let up a little bit but the winds are going strong. have more rain. now out to annapolis where kim dacey is. how are things going there? >> good morning. here we are seeing steady rain that we have been seeing all morning and the wind is picking up. seeing more gusts. there was a little bit of calm between the gusts but we are seeing more gusts and rain goes horizontal. we wi
at seaside heights. simon hobbs is in for sue herera today. >>> but first, to the aftermath of the storm and president obama's visit to the new jersey coastline. kayla tausche is live in atlantic city. kayla? >> reporter: hi, tyler. we just saw air force one fly right over us and headed likely toward the atlantic city airport. we have tons of residents in atlantic city who turned out very excited, very rambunctious to seat president. it is the first day of sun after days of wind and rain and of course the wreckage of sandy here is evident as a place that used to be home to more of a residential part of the boardwalk. residents would fish off of it and stroll here. not so much the business part of the boardwalk but the wreckage you're seeing here, nonetheless. here in atlantic city the cleanup is just in its early, early stages. some residents who chose to stay behind getting power. i spoke to one resident today who finally got power, got a pump to his basement and started trying to pump out water that had flooded his basement. he was moved to tears when he started talking about watching
storm sandy. we are also getting new tape in, this is feeding in now, wtvi out of atlantic city. first aerials of the boardwalk, of course the famous boardwalk, sections that were washed away. you can see the boats that are just tossed about there, the homes are right there on the water. and just remnants of what the boardwalk used to be, as it just goes out into the water. 11,000 people spend the night in red cross shelters in that area. but this is one of the first aerials that we're seeing from the famous boardwalk out of atlantic city. ali velshi was in atlantic city last night and it was extraordinary to see just how quickly the water had risen and when he was doing those reports, got up one point to his waist. it really was a city that, for the most part, people hunkered down. he did not see a lot of people out on the streets. it was pretty much abandoned. in the light of day, you're just beginning to get a sense of the damage and devastation that that atlantic city area has experienced, particularly the boardwalk area, and the commercial area that was abandoned last night. for t
there in your city? >> well, i think the first thing that we need to do is to get power restored as quickly as we can. you know, there's an old saying that pictures are better than words. and for the president to come to atlantic city, i am most appreciative. he will see for himself the devastation that has been wrecked on this city by sandy. but i'm happy to say that although the loss in terms of property is catastrophic, on the human side the loss was very minimal. not to diminish the loss of one life that we had, but there has been no real serious injury to our residents. we did have one fatality. and so on the human side, i think we came through this as best as we could hope. certainly we would like to have preserved all life, but we did unfortunately lose one. but again, on the property side, catastrophic damage. on the human side, very minimal, so i'll very thankful for that. >> seeing things very important but the actions of the people of atlantic city restoring power more important. what is the timeline, sir, that you think that people will get power? >> as we speak, crews are out a
a couple hundred people still in their homes on the bay side of the city. the governor said it's a situation they will have to monitor and first thing in the morning at first light respond to and try to get those people out. not far from here just a couple blocks, one of the city's last resort shelters a guard unit went in there and pulled those people out and took them to atlantic city high school. so the shelters that were kept if place drawing criticism. chris christie's statement was there shouldn't have been shelters open here on the island. the winds are still coming ashore here. and we really won't know what kind of damage has taken place inside the city proper. i'm chris kato reporting for wcau. >> what he was explaining was cutting out of some of the time because we have a live shot in the middle of the storm about the controversy over those shelters. the the contrast is between the wishes of the local mayor and the wishes of the governor. governor chris christie saying there should not have been any sheltering in place on site in atlantic city that everybody should ha
